Does Metro Services help build resumes or is a resume required?
Metro employees are happy to help assist with your resume. Typically, we do not require resumes for our positions. However, if the client needs a high level of experience for the job, a resume will likely be required. Having a resume will always work to your advantage when applying for a job.
Am I guaranteed full-time employment with the company I go to work for after starting as a temporary employee?
This all depends on you. Your attitude, work ethic, discipline, and punctuality are going to play the biggest part in securing you a full-time position with the company you are working for. Unless told otherwise, our positions are predominantly temp-to-hire, so your probationary period of 90 days is going to be very important to the employer in helping gauge and measure your performance. So, work hard, be on time, perform well, and have a good attitude and you will likely be chosen to be on the team.
How often do I get paid?
Metro Services pays on a weekly basis.
How far does Metro look on backgrounds?
In most cases, we look back seven years. However, depending on the employer, a background could disqualify you from employment at a specific location.
Does Metro offer forklift training classes?
Yes! This class must be administered in Manchester, TN at Metro’s headquarters where you will be provided a forklift to practice on, an obstacle course, safety lessons, and a knowledge test at the end of the class.
Does Metro offer forklift certification?
Yes! You must complete the course with a passing grade.
If I start working as a temporary employee, is it possible to be promoted or hired on full-time before the end of my 90 days?
Yes! On many occasions, an outstanding employee has been hired on within their 90 days. If the company sees you as an asset to their work force and you are performing well, it is possible that you will be hired on more quickly.
